RHINOPLASTY LIMA PERU– NOSE SURGERY

A rhinoplasty, also called nose job, is an invasive surgical procedure that aims to reshape form of the nose to enhance facial harmony, and sometimes, correct impaired breathing caused by structural defects in the nose.

This technique is used to treat:

  • The position of the nostril.
  • Nose width.
  • Nose profile with humps and depressions.
  • Enlarged, dropping or upturned nasal bridges.
  • Nasal asymmetry.

So that this is the perfect method for those who feel uncomfortable with specific sections in the shape of their nose. Also, correction of a deviated septum, one of the most common causes of breathing impairment, can be achieved by this kind adjusting of nasal structure.

HOW IS THE RHINOPLASTY PROCESS

There is not only one kind of rhinoplasty and, as well, there is no only one kind of method to reshape the nose.

The alternatives are:

REDUCTION RHINOPLASTY

Is the most common type of reshaping surgery for the nose. It is used to give the patient a more proportionate nose to other facial features. It is particularly frequent for humps reduction in the bridge of the nose. During the surgery, the doctor removes small amounts of or cartilage to achieve the desired results. A technic called alar base reduction is usual, it consists in the removal of small wedges of tissue in the area where the nostril and the cheeks connect. Computer software is used often to plan the surgery to generate better results.

AUGMENTATION RHINOPLASTY

Many people might find their nose as to little, that’s why this treatment is the another popular one. To achieve the goal, the doctor performs bone or tissues grafting to build up the nasal tip or the bridge. Cartilage of other parts of the nose and the body is used to rise the size of the nose. As in the reduction rhinoplasty, computer software is used to plan the operation.

POST-TRAUMATIC RHINOPLASTY

This procedure is done to whenever patients suffer from injuries to the nose. It can address both appearance and functionality. During this procedure, doctors might try to straighten the nose and to correct the nasal septum. Doctors are capable of setting simple broken noses just a few days after the incident, but if the fracture is severe, the operation might have to wait until it is completely healed.

RECONSTRUCTIVE RHINOPLASTY

This kind of nose intervention is used when the patient has lost some part of the nose during an accident, skin cancer or any other serious illness. Surgeons rebuild the nose using special technics such as skin grafting and flap technics. The complexity of the method led patients to need more than one surgery, that has to be done by a specialized surgeon.

COSTS OF THE SURGERY

A rhinoplasty is rated between $3,000 and $15,000, this can vary by factors such as the country in which the surgery is performed, the facilities, the doctor’s reputation, the kind of anesthesia and the cost of postoperative care.

It is usual for the initial cost of surgery not to consider the costs of hospitalization, anesthesia and postoperative care, however it is important that the patient knows that he must also pay these expenses, so it is always advisable to ask about the costs of these factors To have a more accurate estimate.

When rhinoplasty is performed as a cosmetic surgery it will hardly be covered by health insurance.However procedures such as deviated septum corrections and others respiratory problems are regularly paid for by insurance, so medical staff could determine if the patient is eligible for health insurance coverage.

Because most of the rhinoplasties are  performed for cosmetic reasons and they are not eligible for health insurance coverage, many surgeons offer financing options for their patients, so people can opt for fee payments with very low interest rates And even discounts for the advance payment of the procedure.

POST-OPERATORY AND RECOVERY

After having a rhinoplasty, the recovery process can take several weeks and patients should be prepared for this. Usually after surgery, is recommended an absolute rest of 2 weeks, in which the patient will need help with basic daily tasks.

After the surgery it is advisable to heed the doctor’s recommendations and take a lot of rest to have a faster and more effective recovery.

THE MOST COMMON RECOMMENDATIONS MADE BY DOCTORS ARE:

  • Put cold compresses on the nose
  • Keeping the head high even when the patient is sleeping
  • Wear button-down clothes, which should not go over your head, for a major comfort
  • Brush your teeth slowly to avoid getting hurt
  • Do not eat food that is difficult to chew
  • Do not blow your nose or sneeze
  • Change the dressing of the nose under the direction of your surgeon

Following the indications and postoperative care recommended by the doctor, the patient should retake his daily activities in 2 weeks, however there are still cares that must be taken into account to achieve full recovery.

THE MOST COMMON RECOMMENDATIONS AFTER THE SECOND WEEK ARE:

  • Avoid physical exertion or exercises that require force
  • Minimize dietary sodium to reduce the swelling
  • use sunscreen with a minimum of 30 SPF
  • Do not wear glasses, sunglasses that could injure the septum
  • Attend consultation with the doctor periodically.

The side effects after surgery will depend on the care that the patient has, and the visualization of the first results are usually visible after three weeks, although the final result will be shown after a few months.

WHAT BENEFITS CAN I HAVE FROM A RHINOPLASTY

A rhinoplasty has aesthetic and healthy benefits for the person who undergo the surgery, since both aspects are affected.

AESTHETIC BENEFITS

Many people are not happy with the shape of their nose, they feel that it does not fit with the rest of their facial features. Due to this they use a rhinoplasty to improve the shape and give that harmonious balance to the face that they are looking by changing the septum and even the tip of the nose. Among the most important cosmetic benefits are:

  • Facial Symmetry: Rhinoplasty can create a more balanced appearance, so it is easy to get attention in other areas of the face.

WHAT IS FACIAL SURGERY?

Facial Plastic Surgery or facial rejuvenation takes place on the face and neck, and refers to a surgical procedure, its main purpose is to reduce the visible signs of aging on the face.

This surgical intervention is one of the most sought after by the fact that the face is the main delator of the age. Stress, worries, years and emotions are manifested there first.

The skin is a very delicate epidermal membrane, which is exposed to environmental aggressions (sun, cold, wind, etc.). In addition, the gestures mark the lines of expression until they become wrinkles.

For this reason, these types of interventions are popular in both men and women, who seek to stay lofty. The lines of expression in the brow, the cheeks, the eyes and the neck can disappear thanks to this.

THE MOST COMMON FACIAL INTERVENTIONS ARE:

Blepharoplasty: seeks to rejuvenate the eyelids by remodeling the periocular tissues. It has aesthetic purposes, but in some cases is performed solely for visual reasons. Its purpose is to raise the eyelids.

In the case of lower blepharoplasty, the bags of the lower eyelids are removed and in some cases the rows of the ears are improved.

Mentoplasty: consists of a surgical procedure that seeks by various means to achieve an increase in the projection of the chin.

Eyebrow Lifting: it is a surgical technique for the remodeling of the eyebrow arch where it is replaced by detachment and re-suspension with sutures.

Lipofilling is a fat graft that is performed in a minimally invasive surgical procedure, where fat is removed from one area of ​​the body, is processed and then injected into another region.

WHAT IS THE PRICE OF A FACIAL SURGERY?

The prices vary according to each specialist or area, however, here we can see a stipulation:

If it is a blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) the price oscillates around 4000 dollars, being able to get prices less modest than 7000 dollars.

lipofilling is estimated at 1500 or 2000 dollars.

For the eyebrow lift the price varies between $ 5000 and $ 6000.

And mentoplasty can easily be found between $ 4,200 and $ 5,000,

WHAT IS THE PROCESS OF A FACIAL SURGERY?

BLEPHAROPLASTY

Blepharoplasty usually takes from one to three hours, depending on the degree of surgery. In case of working with the four eyelids, it will start from the upper eyelids and then the lower eyelids.

In a typical procedure, the surgeon makes incisions that continue the natural lines of the eyelid, the folds of the upper eyelids and just below the eyelashes in the lower eyelid.

The incisions can extend into the popular “crow’s feet” or lines that form when smiling at the outer corners of your eyes.

MENTOPLASTY

Usually lasts between 30 minutes and an hour and a half, and recovery is about one week. It is performed on an outpatient basis and under general anesthesia.

However, surgery may be of augmentation or prosthetic. In both situations the process is different.

If the mentoplasty is of magnification, to obtain a profile with more balance, a sliding of a portion of the bone is made forward, however, in many cases a silicone prosthesis is necessary.

EYEBROW LIFTING

The process varies according to the method used, in case it is performed through a forehead lift:

The doctor makes an incision behind the hairline, through the upper part of the forehead. Through this incision, the muscles are tightened and the excess skin is removed.

To finish the surgery, there is a stretching of the skin of the forehead to raise the position of the eyebrow line and eliminate horizontal wrinkles.

LIPOFILLING

Consists of a natural treatment, through a small liposuction with local anesthesia, the patient’s own fat is extracted. Then, after a preparation, it is reinjected into the previously defined facial areas.

This intervention can be taken as a unique treatment to rejuvenate the face. But also, it is a good complement for a facelift or eyelid surgery.

HOW IS THE POSTOPERATIVE OF FACIAL SURGERIES?

The postoperative process of facial surgeries is not traumatic, but obviously requires certain care and limitations. In addition, care varies depending on the surgical work performed.

The care process varies according to each individual, all our bodies are completely differents, however there are a number of rules that must be met according to the different facial interventions that are performed.

Generally the main care is:

  • Avoid carrying out physical activities.
  • In cases where you have acted on the neck it is advisable to move the neck together with the shoulders, without turning it to the sides.
  • Apply ice on inflamed areas or if bruises appear on the skin.
  • Sleeping with some inclination on the pillow is reccommended.
  • Avoid direct sunlight throughout the recovery process
  • The anti-inflammatories and analgesics prescribed by the surgeon must be ingested.

As for brow lifts, patients return to their daily activities in about a week.

Compared to traditional forehead lift / brow lift, the technique of brow lift / endoscopic brow lift requires smaller incisions. The recovery time is reduced. However, both interventions heal quickly.

In case of a mentoplasty, the patient may return to normal activities within 5 to 7 days, without physical exertion or activities that may cause blows to the face.

Regarding oral hygiene should be done with dental floss and brush. In addition, it is important to perform rinses after each meal after the third day with a mixture of chlorhexidine mouthwash and saline.

If the intervention is a blepharoplasty, any activity that resects the eyes should be avoided. Activities like: reading, watching television and fixating the look in front of the computer, should wait.

WHAT FACTORS HAVE TO BE TAKEN INTO ACCOUNT WHEN PERFORMING A FACIAL SURGERY?

  • Before any major ambulatory surgery or surgery with general anesthesia must have the presence of an anesthetist physician who possesses the necessary skills.
